This study includes an interview with men who have selected "watchful waiting" or "active surveillance" for their localized prostate cancer, in lieu of active treatment (such as surgery or radiation). We hope to understand the educational and support needs of men on surveillance so that we can develop a new intervention that will improve quality of life for such men.
Interviews are conducted over the telephone and require approximately 90 minutes to complete. Men interviewed are compensated for their participation in the study.

The aim of this clinical study is to determine the optimal treatment conditions to achieve prostate cancer tumor ablation and to assess the effects of WST11 mediated VTP treatment in patie...
Many prostate cancer are slow or non progressive forms that would never impair quality or quantity of like of life if undetected. For this localized prostate cancer, the recommendation is ...
This study is aimed at providing further clinical evidence to support or refute the current understanding of biological sensitivity of prostate cancer to fractionated radiotherapy. Determi...
Men, 45 years of age or older, with localized prostate cancer will be injected once with a ready made paste including 600 mg 2-hydroxyflutamide (Liproca Depot) into the site of the prostat...
RATIONALE: Colony-stimulating factors, such as GM-CSF, may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells. Giving GM-CSF before surgery may be an effective treatment ...
Few couple-focused interventions have improved psychological and relationship functioning among men diagnosed with localized prostate cancer and their spouses. This study compared the impact of intima...
Utilization of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for treatment of localized prostate cancer is increasing. Guidelines and payers variably support the use of prostate SBRT. We therefore sought to s...
African American (AA) men might be less likely to benefit from certain treatment types for localized prostate cancer (PCa).
Long term outcomes with hypofractionated radiotherapy for prostate cancer are limited. We report 10-year outcomes for patients treated with intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for localized p...
Men diagnosed with low-risk prostate cancer are typically eligible for active surveillance of their cancer, involving monitoring for cancer progression and making judgements about the risks of prostat...
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
The phosphoprotein encoded by the BRCA1 gene (GENE, BRCA1). In normal cells the BRCA1 protein is localized in the nucleus, whereas in the majority of breast cancer cell lines and in malignant pleural effusions from breast cancer patients, it is localized mainly in the cytoplasm.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Erectile Dysfunction Urology Urology is the branch of medicine concerned with the urinary tract and diseases that affect it. Examples include urethritis, urethrostenosis and incontinence. Urology is a su...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
